I currently work as a systems administrator for GSA Capital, managing Unix, Linux and Windows systems and providing IT support. I rely heavily on automation and open source technologies in my daily activities.
I previously worked as a Network Projects engineer for Atos in the Major Projects division. My role included design and implementation of LAN and WAN systems in Data Centre environments. My last project involved working on a major internal infrastructure overhaul spanning five sites for which I produced all the physical layer design and implementation.
Before then, I worked for Netcraft in Bath, while taking a year out from my degree studies. My roles included developing and running the SSL Server Survey, reviewing Automated Vulnerability Scan results, and performing occasional penetration tests against web applications for financial institutions.
I am a former graudate of ECS (University of Southampton), earning a First in Computer Science with Distributed Systems and Networks to the Masters level.
In my spare time, I am a member of the Sabayon Linux developers group, where I help maintain the Sabayon Community Repositories, help look after the project infrastructure, maintain the puppet-sabayon module, and dabble with package maintenance.
